The great-niece of fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy Gabriella has announced the birth of her first child.

Keeping her announcement simple, the fashionista quipped, “We made a human” in her cute post.

She continued, “I am forever your Achilles de Mallmann,” adding her son’s birthday, August 3, in the post.

Gabriela and Ugo’s family and friends from high society liked the picture, which showed little Achilles sound asleep.

Her stepmother ZoĆ« de Givenchy, Princess Eugenie’s best friend in society and “power player” of LA, gushed: “Darling boy. We already love you so much.’

The post also appealed to Achilles’ father Ugo, the dashing oil salesman who sewed Gabriella off her feet and married her in Chelsea in 2019 before the couple hosted a lavish ceremony in Capri two years later due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Gabriella cheekily announced the pregnancy with a vacation photo taken in Burano in April.

Sharing a snap of her standing in front of a small bridge on the Italian island, her blossoming bump peeking out from under a bright pink sweater, she joked, “For once, a bump caused by the baby, not the food.”

Gabriella is the daughter of Olivier de Givenchy – financier at the prestigious JP Morgan – and the great-niece of the famous French designer Hubert de Givenchy.

Born in Britain, she attended the prestigious Queen’s Gate School in Kensington, which was also attended by celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Her Paris-born husband Ugo is now the cousin of Francois-Xavier de Mallmann, chairman of the banking division at Goldman Sachs.

Gabriella’s brother Louis de Givenchy was a page boy at Princess Eugenie’s wedding in 2018, so the guest list for their wedding was undoubtedly star-studded, with the bride also being friends with Talita von Furstenberg.

Gabriella’s dress was expected to be designed by the house of Givenchy at the time.
